Awkwafina: a Queens born artist who has carved out a place for herself in the rap scene with her often funny, always upfront flows.

Cazwell: a dance/hip hop artist with a campy, sexy bent towards LGBTQ themes (check out his most recent mixtape, Summer of Rachet.)

Murphy Maxwell: beloved Tacoma local singer unafraid of vocal runs and riffs, delivers with intricate and unexpected beats and arresting performance style.

Considered by many to be a top club DJ in both the Seattle and New York scenes, Colby b earned regular spots spinning at Neumos and Chop Suey, and now plays in NY clubs Le Bain, Marquee, EVR and more.
